obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration k
